News from The Health Office

Healthy Children Learn Better--

Keep your child home if any of the following are noticed: 
  • Fever of 100+ degrees
  • Diarrhea and/or vomiting within last 24 hours
  • Signs of illness that interfere with sleeping, activity or play 
  • Complaints of ear pain or drainage from ears
  • Nasal discharge which persists over 14 days duration 
  • Persistent sore throat with fever or rash 
  • Undiagnosed skin rash or sores with redness, swelling, or fluid 
  • Redness of the eye with discharge or swelling 
  • Asthma not responding to medication, peak flow 50% or less, or treatment required more than every 4 hours.         

This is for the protection of all students.  All students benefit from a healthy classroom environment and are most successful when rested and feeling good.

Please refer to the following guidelines to determine if your child’s needs would be best met by coming to school or staying at home.

Send to School   
  • Fever free for 24 hours without fever medication
  • No vomiting in the last 24 hours 
  • No diarrhea in the last 24 hours  
  • Minor cold symptoms
  • Asthma responsive to medication 
  • With MD clearance following hospitalization, orthopedic injury or communicable disease     

 

Medication--

If your child needs to take any form of medication at school, we must have the district form on file; with parent's and doctor's signature.  These required forms are available in our Health Office.  This is for all medication, including over-the-counter.

 

Oral Health Assessments--

California Law, Education Code Section 49452.8 requires that your child have an oral health assessment by May 31 in Kindergarten or first grade, whichever is his or her first year of public school.  The law specifies that the assessment must be performed by a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional.

 

Orthopedic Protocol--

All ace wraps, braces, splints, casts, and crutches must have a note from the medical provider. Students with casts and crutches will not be allowed to actively participate in playground/PE activities because of the potential danger to the student and others.
